A friend of mine is looking to direct a play on this subject - she has read Oleanna and likes it and is looking for something similar (and yes, I've already talked to her about Lolita too).

If anyone can name any titles on this subject it'd be greatly appreciated!

Wait...are we talking a sexual/romantic relationship between a student and a teacher? Or just a play about a teacher and a student?

I should've clarified: a sexual relationship between student and teacher.

There is nothing sexual in Master Harold... and the boys.

And there is no teacher.

There is a boy and two waiters.

A student has a sexual relationship with an older woman in Tea and Sympathy. But she's not a teacher.

Doubt. (If I'm not mistaken Father Flynn is the gym teacher.)

And a plug for Speech and Debate, a personal favorite.

Ryan Scott Oliver is writing a musical called "Mrs. Sharp" about that. But I don't know if the rights are out yet.
